    Worth it just for Kanye trying to sing live at about 3:50.

    At least Kanye pushes the envelope and agitates. He's the closest there is like old punk or metal than held a generation together and pissed off the elders.

    The calculated, focus-group tested, marketed like laundry detergent cunts like Swift are the issue,

    Katy is excluded cause she has great tits,

    A lot of valid points but that guy is hard to listen to.

    IMO - physical traits/dancing/performing became more important when videos got popular. That led to the writer/artist divide we are at.

    Swift can write music. Check out Ryan Adams' cover of the 1989 album. The problem is the overproduced synth pop production she submits to.

    That was interesting.

    I stopped listening to pop music back in 2004 (assuming K-ROQ is a pop music station) I now listen to a lot of classical music and some metal, about 80/20. I keep checking K-Roq from time to time and I never hear anything good. I'm alright with that since there is a ton of good music already written and recorded, I don't need anything new.

    Music can suck from now, till the end of time, but please keep making good TV shows, I feel like I'm living in the golden age of TV.

    Oasis? Really? I just want to make sure this isn't a typo, I have to ask.

    The ranter in the video seems to think they often have other people write the songs and give them credit to give them, literally, "cred".

    MTV, as great as it was in the early days, is partly responsible for the decline of popular music.

    For me, the last good music was the 90s grunge / alternative bands.

    That was rock's last gasp. It peaked so high in the 80s' there was no place to go but down. Im talking about mainstream obviously, you can still find good underground bands the mainstream is ignoring.

    Its all based on white guilt. Music critics are out of touch with the public and push their ideals.
